North Lake

The North Lake Specific Plan, amended in 2007, provides neighborhood-specific design and land use regulations for an approximately 107-acre area in northern Pasadena. This Specific Plan area is generally bounded by Elizabeth Street to the north, Catalina Avenue, Mentor Avenue, and Wilson Avenue to the east, Maple Street to the south and El Molino Avenue and Hudson Avenue to the west. The Metro Gold Line Lake Station is located just outside the Specific Plan boundaries to the south. Other notable assets in the Specific Plan area include Washington Park and the historic Washington Theater.

In effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to engage the community, the City of Pasadena Planning & Community Development Department will hold virtual open houses for the third round of community engagement. The North Lake Specific Plan Open House will go live sometime in October. Check out the Virtual Open House Page here to view when the plan will go live.
